Hoegaarden to close

Brewing giant brewer InBev announced today that it would close Belgium’s famous Hoegaarden brewery, long associated with classic “white beer.”

InBev, based in nearby Leuven and the largest beer producer in the world, said belt tightening would eliminate 232 jobs.

Production of Hoegaarden Grand Cru and other beers will move to InBev Jupille brewery in the south of Belgium, although the storage and bottling facilities will remain open.
